Police Investigate Claim of Boy Grabbed at Waco in HEB
The Holiday season often generates many feel-good stories about the goodness in humanity but every once in a while someone dangerous comes out of the woodwork.
On Sunday afternoon at around 5 p.m., KWTX reported that Waco police responded to a call about about a man grabbing a 5-year-old boy at H-E-B on 19th Street in Waco. His 9-year-old brother was witness to the event, according to Waco police.
The boy said the man grabbed his arm near the check-out line and when he pulled away, the man laughed and walked away. While Waco police is not investigating this incident as an attempted kidnapping, parents and authorities undoubtedly want to raise awareness about keeping your children close at hand during the holidays.
Christy Watson, mother of the child who was grabbed, told KWTX:
Somebody else might not be so lucky, and who knows, really I'm OK, I'm at peace because I got my baby... but I'm concerned that he's not caught.
